If your '83 Ford T-bird has a carburetor the fuel filter is screwed onto the front of it. While the engine is off and cold, all you need is a small wrench to unscrew the fuel line then unscrew the fuel filter from the carburetor. Wrap some thread-lock tape on the threads of the new filter and replace. Make sure it's tight but not so tight that it strips the threads on either the fuel line or the filter. That's it.

How do you replace the fuel filter on a 1983 Chevy S-10?

If the fuel filter is not located anywhere in the fueline, that is, if you are unable to visualize it in the fuel line, look in the carburator. It should be located where the fuel line goes into the carburator. Disconnect the line, and then remove the larger nut behind that, and the fuel filter should be behind that. Not knowing your vehicle history, someone could have replaced the fuel line, and didn't put an in-line fuel filter back in.
